Seemed everything in the restaurant contained too much salt. Had Tuna as a main and the rice and veggie combo was so salty it was inedible. Too bad since the tuna was prepared perfectly.

We would MUCH rather eat here than in any of the casino restaurants. It’s worth the cab or Uber to this place. The seafood is top notch. The cocktails are creative. There is a piano bar too. It’s fancy without being snobby. Highly recommend!
